Gongbat is a spectacular shoot-em-up with fantastic audio and pixel art animation that sees you blasting biological abominations and huge bosses with a prehistoric transforming bat.
Gameplay is fast, fun and downright crazy, with you controlling an Gongbat (a powerful ancient bat), as it attempts to put a stop to an evil scientists nefarious plans. To do this you’ll have to take on the scientists henchmen and a wide variety of massive mutated beasts across five areas, all while listening to awesome music tracks.
Your Gongbat is surprisingly tough for a bat, with you able to blast enemies with your sonar waves, purchase upgrades and even use ancient Gongs to transform and use special powers. It’s a wonderfully crafted game, you’re never sure what’s around the corner as you take on a mass of bizarre mutants. It’s worth playing through for the audio/visual experience alone – a bat-shit crazy fever dream of epic proportions.
